One large notable difference between the 2017 Kia Cadenza and the 2017 Toyota Avalon is the apparent absence of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the Toyota Avalon. Through these connectivity devices, you can plug in your compatible phone and use the center dash display as media platform for your navigation, messaging, and apps, all powered with the same program you are used to on your phone. Unfortunately, Toyota does not offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto as part of their Entune Audio system. The base model of the Avalon also does not have the option of including navigation built into their touchscreen display, while the base model Cadenza does.

When it comes to safety, the new Cadenza includes Hill Start Assist as a standard feature on their base model while the Avalon does not. The base model Cadenza also gets fog lamps, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the option to have a power sunroof with tilt, unlike its competition.
